De-escalation, finishing the mission! – with ICEEFT Trainer George Faller

4 November 2022 9:00 am - 1:00 pm AEST

A much anticipated MCEFT training event, George Faller spoke at the MCEFT launch and has been a key supporter of MCEFT and a major contributor to growing EFT internationally and extending the model in important ways.

Training Content

Couples work is a dynamic challenge! It can be invigorating and exciting … and sometimes confusing and discouraging. There is nothing like a difficult session to train therapists not to want to work with couples.

This online half day webinar is designed to enhance, deepen, and expand therapeutic work in Stage One of EFT by helping therapists stay focused and implement specific micro-moves to stay on target and help couples achieve de-escalation.

Learning to take control of difficult moments, work with predictable blocks and find in session markers that provide sign posts for progress will allow you to emerge from this training with a distilled set of ‘what works’ applications that can be applied immediately in your clinical work.

This cutting-edge training takes the best of proven interventions and applies them to renew your confidence by getting help in the areas where you get lost in reactivity and mis-attunement. Learn multiple strategies to make explicit, expand and work through the challenges we all experience. Go deeper with George as he breaks down the moment-to-moment decisions that inform the couple treatment process so you can immediately incorporate powerful, proven techniques into your own work. Through video clips, experiential activities, and vibrant dialogue, we will learn how to freshen up, better attune, and refine our skills. And we will have fun! Join us and come away inspired and more fully engaged in your own work with couples and families.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify the key assumptions of attachment theory as it applies to adult relationships.
  • Identify the assumptions, stages, and steps of EFT, as well as key change events.
  • Articulate key interventions that help clients to reprocess key emotional responses and reduce reactivity.

George is a highly respected and beloved Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) Trainer and Supervisor. He merges his background as a retired Lieutenant of the NYC Fire Department and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (in NY & CT), as he embodies the calm, precise & strategic approach of a first responder and the mindful, compassionate and nuanced manner of a seasoned clinician. George was trained by the leaders of couples therapy, including Susan Johnson, John Gottman & Harville Hendrix, as he worked front-line to help support and heal families in the profound aftermath of 9/11. George’s down-to-earth, accessible style paired with his masterful precision in articulating and demonstrating the micro-moves of therapy are just some of the reasons that he is uniquely qualified and highly sought after as a Supervisor and Trainer.
